New Orleans Saints could drop several players from their draft boards

The New Orleans Saints are in need of help on the defensive front and were looking to the draft this year to snag some talent. However after several reports, they may be dropping a few names from their boards or at least having to ask a few more questions where they are concerned.

DE Dion Jordan–the former Oregon pass rusher announced today that he would have surgery to repair a torn labrum he suffered this past season. His recovery time is said to be 3-4 months. This would put him coming back at the latest just before training camp.

Jordan was projected to be drafted by the Saints in numerous mock drafts and be used as an outside linebacker. However, you have to wonder if the Saints will gamble with the #15 pick on him and not go after someone who can begin getting to work immediately.

DE Sam Montgomery–Montgomery has disappeared off the radar after being in consideration for several teams in the first round including the Saints. The former L.S.U. Tiger gave an indication that he would like to head to the Saints during a media session at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine today.

NOLA.com Saints writer Nakia Hogan reported that Montgomery stated he could fit the Saints new 3-4 scheme and expects to meet with them. Montgomery has also admitted he needs to work on his footwork and will begin working on coverage and dropback drills to possibly play an outside linebacker.

Tow things though that stand out against Montgomery is that first according to draftinsider.net, he is “not receiving rave reviews” from his former coaches at L.S.U. and second he admitted today that he and fellow Tiger defensive end Barkevious Mingo have placed bets on who will get the most sacks during the season and for their final game in college.

Montgomery also said that they have placed a $5,000 bet to see who will get drafted higher. While this may not be a big deal to some, the Saints are coming fresh off a season where another performance based system got them in a world of trouble.

There are several players that have potential..........both to play well or wind up on IR with a serious injury. Every week someone else is showing up with a precondition.

It's not like Jordan will be throwing passes if he's here. In the grand scheme of things, his torn labrum isn't that big of a deal.

I was more impressed with Margus Hunt over Dion Jordan this morning anyway

He ran a little slower because he was carrying his girlfriend on his back.

Papz, don't know if you played football, but a defensive end uses moves like the "Rip" Move, "Swim" Move, "Up and Under" Move and the labrum that is torn will be noticed and will limit the speed/power effectiveness of those moves...

Remember Brother, in the 3-4 the defensive ends and nose tackle sacrifice themselves so the linebackers can select their one gap and attack...
